Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family met at this wonderful home over Christmas. We had a great time and I found the owner to be very helpful and accommodating. The location is perfect and the house is fun and comfortable for a family. I highly recommend this spot! I thank the owner for her gracious hospitality!

My family stayed at this house with two college roomies of mine (with their families)... and it was a fun time. Wonderful outdoor spaces... very clean and nice long range views.

We stayed in this house over Thanksgiving week. It is absolutely beautiful and our hosts was very gracious. She and her husband went way out of their way to help us have a very wonderful holiday.

The canal out in front of the house is full of Manatees this time of year and it appears they have a favorite place to hang just off to the right in the river. We would sit in the back of the house and watch them play. The kayaks were great as well.

We would love to stay here again. The house is so spacious that we need more time to use it all properly. Thank you for sharing your house.

Highly recommend . . .

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family gathering. The manatees swimming under the dock, the birds, saltwater pool, hot tub. There was nothing to want during our stay. The home is lovely, warmly decorated, located on the water. The screened-in outdoor areas were so pleasant, comfortable seating on the dock, we wanted to be outside all the time. Close to nature preserves and good restaurants. We all wished we could stay longer. Check in was easy, as was communicating with the owner. Would definitely plan to stay here again.

Perfect house

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I come to Crystal River annually to kayak, scallop, and bike. We have rented many different houses but this one was by far the best. It is ideally located not too far from Kings Bay and was spacious and comfortable for our group of 8 adults. The pool was refreshing after a long day playing on the water and the game room provided hours of fun afterwards. We spent lots of time on the dock watching the sunset or just chilling with a glass of wine. We cooked a fabulous meal of our scallops and had everything we needed in the kitchen. The beds are comfy and the porches were great for relaxing and chatting and sharing stories. We hope to be able to rent this one again next year. Thanks Siglinda for sharing your beautiful house with us.

A great house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group stay in here for our scalloping trip in August. It is very comfortable and very nicely furnished. The owner was easy to communicate with and meeting the housekeeper for check in was a breeze. The docks are in great shape and we had no trouble tying up 3 boats. The large drive allowed for easy vehicle and trailer parking. We are already planning to come back next year.
